Home » Firm News » Getting help when you suspect elder abuse

Although many people do not like to think about it, the reality is that as life expectancy improves because of better medical care some people may eventually require long-term care. Furthermore, the U.S. demographics are changing. Baby boomers are expected to enter retirement and potentially require long-term care in the near future. Thus, it is very important to have a basic understanding of what elder abuse is, individual rights, how to recognize elder abuse and potential legal options.

Many people tend to put their trust in a healthcare facility where healthcare professionals can care for an elderly family member when they can no longer care for themselves, and the family cannot provide care for them 24 hours a day. In such cases, it is important to recognize signs of abuse and neglect.

The signs include, but are not limited to: sudden weight loss, bed sores, changes in behavior, malnutrition and dehydration, bruises and broken bones, the family member showing signs of nervousness around a caregiver and signs that the family member is being over medicated. However, it is important to keep in mind that these signs themselves could be indicators of something else going on health-wise with the loved one, and may not necessary be due to abuse or neglect. But, if a person notices these signs, it may be helpful to be more vigilant.

For anyone who believes that their loved one is experiencing elder abuse or would like the facts of what is happening evaluated, the attorney’s at Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney law offices may be able to provide an overview of the potential legal options.
